Devin Hester Is The NFC's Leading Pro Bowl Vote Getter At Kick Returner

Devin Hester could be headed to his fourth Pro Bowl as a kick returner.

The NFL released its up-to-the-second Pro Bowl voting on Wednesday, and Devin Hester of the Chicago Bears is the leading vote getter among kick returners. Hester is already a three-time Pro Bowl selection.

Though he turned 29 at the beginning of the month, Hester has showed no signs of slowing down as one of the league's most dynamic playmakers. He put on a show last week against the Detroit Lions, which included an 82-yard punt return for a touchdown. Hester returned a punt for a touchdown against the Carolina Panthers in Week 4 and took back a kickoff against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6.

Bears running back Matt Forte is the 10th leading vote getter among players in either conference, but it still wouldn't be good enough to earn the Tulane product a starting nod. Minnesota's Adrian Peterson leads Forte by over 120,000 votes.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers leads all players with 589,801 votes.
